Pool Covers and Solar Blankets

Postby poolfilters » Mon 06 Aug, 2012 03:53

We live in central Florida. Our pool has a birdcage, protecting it from bugs, leaves etc. It also has a bubble type cover. Here I just want to know that if we will be away for a month and a friend will monitor chlorine level etc. Should we keep the pool covered for the month or uncovered? What are the pros and cons?

covered. definately.

just make sure your freind is competent in maintaining chlorine levels, water level (if its not got a self leveler) emptying any skimmer baskets (if appliccable) and generally just keeping an eye on it, and under it. your birdcage will help a great deal but im sure the odd lizard or whatever probably gets in and you dont want anything like that rotting in the bottom/basket for a month!

without the bubble cover youd come back to a swamp. freind or no freind.
